MK1 CAD Modeling

In preparation for my MK1 hand–in I have designed and developed a CAD model to compliment my physical model. Due to the fact that I under estimated the time it would take to both learn and produce a slip cast model I was only able to fully complete two of the eight pieces that I was planning to have for the MK1 hand-in. the CAD model allowed my peers to understand what the final product will look like and envisage the correct material use.

The images above show the completed items, this is a very useful tool as I can now pull dimensions and shapes directly from the models. This will allow for a smother build process in the workshop and will allow me to show people what I’m trying to achieve. A good example of this comes from the creation of the tea strainer. I intend to use the jewellery workshop to complete the tea starrier using there metal presses. I have already visited the technician there and she stated that I drawing would be handy for her to understand exactly what I want, I can now use the cad model as an accurate drawing to help aid my explanation.  My tea strainer drawing can be found here: Tea Strainer Drawing (dimentioned)
